Default Jerky treat mystery: Nearly 600 pets dead; still no source, FDA says

Check you pet treats! Avoid made in China animal and human food products!

Nearly 600 pets have died and more than 3,600 have been sickened in an ongoing, mysterious outbreak of illnesses tied to jerky treats made in China, federal animal health officials said Tuesday.

Most of the cases have been in dogs of all breeds, ages, shapes and sizes, although 10 cats have been sickened, too. The pace of the reported illnesses appears to have slowed, but federal Food and Drug Administration officials are now seeking extra help from veterinarians and pet owners in solving the ongoing puzzle.

Instead, it's likely that the recall of Nestle Purina PetCare Co.'s Waggin Train and Canyon Creek Ranch treats, plus Del Monte Corp.'s Milo's Kitchen Chicken Jerky and Chicken Grillers home-style dog treats simply resulted in fewer treats being available. Two other smaller producers also recalled the treats because of the problem.
Note: January 9, 2013, this happened:

And dog food is supposed to be safe for humans. Why do we pay for so many government agencies that don't do their jobs?
Sure is comforting to know that China will be handling our meat products soon.
I can't wait to die like a dog.
